Police are investigating whether a cop put a seven-months-pregnant woman in a chokehold while busting her for illegal grilling in Brooklyn — an incident caught on film.
Photos released Monday by an East New York advocacy group show Rosan Miller, 27, struggling with a cop who appears to have his arm around her neck.
Officers went to the home over the weekend because Miller was grilling on a public sidewalk in violation of local law, cops said. But a melee broke out that ended with her, her brother and husband all in handcuffs.
The brother, John Miller, was charged with harassment and obstruction of justice. Her husband, Moses Miller, 34, was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction. Rosan Miller got a summons for disorderly conduct.
When former city councilman Charles Barron heard, he called cops to complain and “expedite” the Millers’ release, he said.
“This was all over a grill,” Barron said. “This is about grilling in front of her house.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, the widow of a New York City man who died this month in a videotaped confrontation with New York City police after being placed in a chokehold, demanded justice on Saturday, saying the victim wasn’t asking for trouble.
Eric Garner “was not a violent man — not in any way, shape or form,” said his widow, Esaw Garner, in what were described as her first public remarks about the death. “He was a quiet man, but he’s making a lot of noise now.”
